WHMCS partners with GlobalSign to provide and integrate GlobalSign’s SSL reseller program into its all-in one web hosting management solution
WHMCS customers can now take full advantage of GlobalSign SSL reselling and automation as well as benefit from competitive promo pricing
Portsmouth, NH – 05 May, 2010 – GlobalSign Inc (www.globalsign.com), one of the longest established Certification Authorities (CA) and specialists in SSL and Digital Certificate security, today announced the integration of its SSL reselling module in the latest version of WHMCS’s management hosting solution platform. The SSL reselling module will enable WHMCS users to instantly order and automate reselling GlobalSign SSL Certificates with ease directly from the WHMCS management platform. The integration will assist web hosting companies who wish to adopt SSL Certificates as a value added product into their current product portfolio by simplifying and automating the selling management process.
Since 2005 WHMCS has been offering an all-in one client management, billing, and support platform creating a complete solution for online businesses. The WHMCS platform offers various solutions and modules from automated invoicing and billing, domain management, payment gateways, support tools, and various other modules aimed at solutions for online businesses. WHMCS has partnered with numerous strategic partners to integrate and embed products and services into the WHMCS platform to help online businesses automate and simplify product management. WHMCS choose to integrate GlobalSign’s SSL reseller program and its certificate deployment system due to the high demand of current WHMCS users who currently already resell GlobalSign Certificates.
Currently, WHMCS users who resell GlobalSign SSL Certificates manage the selling and billing processes of reselling SSL Certificates separately through a back end process. However, now with the GlobalSign module embedded into WHMCS, web hosting companies can control the complete management and selling process of all the products they resell including GlobalSign SSL Certificates using one single platform. This integration will also open opportunities for web hosting companies using WHMCS to easily integrate GlobalSign SSL Certificates into their current offerings allowing them to optimize their product portfolio and generate new revenue streams with minimum effort or cost as everything can be managed within WHMCS.
“Our development goals are aimed and based entirely on feedback and request received from our end users; therefore, it was an obvious choice to integrate the GlobalSign Reselling Module as we knew the demand was present” says Matthew Pugh, Lead Developer, WHMCS.
“But furthermore, we are looking forward to offering our global customer base GlobalSign’s range of SSL Certificates creating a well-rounded solution that will meet the needs of our clientele and the levels they serve.”
“We are very excited and proud to welcome a global leader such as WHMCS as our newest partner.” says Steve Waite, Vice President Channel Sales, GlobalSign. “Integrating the GlobalSign Reselling module into WHMCS’s all-in-one management solution will provide immediate benefits to our current partners using WHMCS and will open the door for other web-hosting companies around the world to offer GlobalSign SSL Certificates as a premium add on service to their existing hosting solutions within the management model they are already using.”
All GlobalSign SSL Certificates are issued from GlobalSign’s widely distributed 2048 bit Root CA Certificate and will allow WHMCS customers to easily obtain, install, and activate SSL security to secure their websites, logins, servers, and other next generation services. Companies interested in reselling GlobalSign’s SSL Certificates using the latest WHMCS platform can benefit from an introductory promotional campaign including:
• Low Introductory Pricing
• Free Reseller Account
• Chance to win an Apple iPad when sign-up between now and May 31st, 2010
While most PKI deployments are costly, complex and time consuming to implement, GlobalSign’s Managed Service for SSL (MSSL) and Enterprise PKI for Digital IDs (ePKI), overcome this predicament with a robust, easy to use, cost effective solution. GlobalSign’s MSSL provides educational institutions the ability to conveniently and quickly purchase SSL Certificates through an online web portal, reducing time spent on SSL, optimizing efficient ordering and delivery of certificates and is ideal for multi-year, multi-license, or multiple SSL requirements across the most distributed organizations. ePKI, GlobalSign’s Managed Service for Digital IDs provides a solution to easily manage digital certificates across departments and organizations to provide a secure and reliable form of document exchange and email encryption, enabling documents and messages to retain their integrity while recipients can determine the documents authenticity and authorship. Both MSSL and ePKI are managed through the GlobalSign Certificate Center (GCC), a web-based interface providing institutions a simple and convenient way to manage all Digital Certificates from one portal that can be accessed anywhere around the clock. Equipped with advanced features and tools, administrators have full control of their certificates lifecycle (issuing, reissuing, renewing, revoking), access to comprehensive reporting, user management, billing management and more.
